O come, all ye letters and packages.
This holiday season, the U.S. Postal Service said it expects to deliver more than 15 billion pieces of mail, including 850 million packages. Despite the rise of email and more private package deliverers, USPS says its volume is expected to be 10% more than the same period last year.
Take that, Santa!
In some cities, mail carriers will deliver packages on Christmas, the Postal Service also said in its Wednesday announcement.
It delivers packages on Sundays in most major cities across the country, but starting Nov. 26, the Postal Service will add Sunday delivery to areas that don’t normally have that service. Mail carriers will deliver 6 million packages on Sundays this holiday season.
